    The infamous tuck rule revisted...

    OMG guys/gals. this game is by far the worst officiating game I have witnessed as a Miami Dolphins fan.

    How is it, Sam Bradford, who's being sacked and the ball is dislodged by a helmet is not a fumble....?

    What ever happened to the rule that there has to be indisputable evidence to over turn a call on the field?

    Even the Bradford's fumble over the top at the goal?

    How does Sam have possession if the ball is moving around and is on a Dolphins players back, and in the end, he does not have it?

    Then that other clear fumble recovery when that Ram's receiver clearly fumbles the ball (not a football move) ?

    Just simply atrocious referring calls today.

    We were lucky to come out with a win, the refs did everything to tip the table.

    Sometimes I really feel the NFL has become similar to the Pro Wrestling League.

    No integrity at all in clearly blown calls ruled on the field.

    It's a rule that has been kept on the books to solidify the Pats 2001 championship. There can be no other explanation.

    I don't understand it.

    Is it tied to betting and the point spread?

    Bradford clearly fumbled and we would have iced the game twice.

    What ever happened to the indisputable evidence rule to overturn a call ruled on the field?

    I'm I that biased?

    Bradford fumbled the ball.

    Terrible rule.
    As the TV commentators said, " the rule should be changed".

    I agree, it nearly cost us this game.

    The tuck rule just doesn't need to exist. It's rarely applied and it's one of those rules that just doesn't make sense to most football fans. Bradford fumbled the ball, plain and simple. No need to complicate the play with subtle nuanced interpretations of what the QB was attempting to do.

    The overturn of the fumbled catch was just as horrendous call. He caught it and turned up field. Not to mention that it was called a fumble.

    I don't have an issue with Bradford's TD. He did fumble the ball before it crossed the goal line but he reestablished possession. The ball was across the goal line before a Dolphin player ripped the ball out.

    I believe the refs also made a mistake stopping the clock on Gibens nice one handed catch at the 45 sec mark. He caught he ball and landed inbounds while being touched by a defender.

    This is one of those obscure rules that has never really been talked about much (except for the Raiders/Pats). I remember seeing Dan get hit in similar fashion a few times and that was always ruled a fumble.

    worst reffed game i dunno I think that goes to last week. In the last 2 weeks Miami has gotten screwed on 5 reviews by the refs and we still won both games. The funny thing is last weeks head ref was the tuck rule ref and now this week the tuck rule goes against us. To me it is like Goddell told the refs try your best to screw the dolphins and never make calls go there way under the hood.
    Taylor got the final word. As he walked past the Jets' locker room after the game, he yelled, "It's like a damn graveyard here. ... Talk about that for two weeks" - a reference to the Jets' bye

    You're not biased. Here's the thing about the tuck rule: It's BS, it's callable, but NOT IN THIS CASE - because Bradford's left hand cradled the ball into the fumble. Cannot be ruled an incomplete pass if last point of contact was his left hand.

    The reversed fumble was ridiculous, too. Revisit Nannee call? Jeez.

    We will not catch a break 'til we break through.
